Hilow defines “roster construction,” and sets the stage for the journey ahead!
In this lesson, Hilow explores the natural human tendencies that lead to poor DFS decisions from our competition, setting us up to exploit these mistakes through our roster construction strategies and approaches.
Hilow takes a look at chalk and “chalk builds,” then defines & explores the ideas of “restrictive chalk” and “expansive chalk” — diving into the specifics of what each type of chalk means for our rosters on a given week, and how we should consider handling each type of setup to maximize our returns over time.
One of the most overlooked elements of DFS strategy/approach, “knowing your goals and tailoring your rosters” can be a major separator between yourself and the field, and can be an IMMEDIATE difference-maker in your bottom-line this DFS season.
As Hilow notes in this pivotal lesson :: Our competition (when they understand variance) is typically concerned with managing variance. As we learn to understand, embrace, and turn variance to our favor, we can gain a MASSIVE edge on the field.
What does the field get right about stacking and correlation? What do they get wrong?
More Importantly :: What do YOU get right and wrong about stacking and correlation?
By cleaning up mistakes in this area, an extraordinary, bankable edge can be created!
How do we balance and build our portfolio as a whole? How do we make sure we are positioning ourselves correctly for each tournament-type we are entering? Portfolio Building dives into these questions — positioning you to accept the appropriate amount of variance on each type of roster.
Hilow could build an entire course around this topic! Instead, he packs a serious punch into this one lesson: laying out his process, and helping you get your feet under you for your own weekly approach.
I’n a “serious casual” player (if there is such a thing), and I loved this course. Highly informative and well-worth the price. Thank you to Hilow and JM for making this available.
This deep dive into game theory, and how it translates to constructing a tourney-winning roster, really does feel like a massive edge. Therefore, PLEASE DON’T BUY THIS COURSE. (LOLOL)
Game Theory Guru!!
Loved this new course from Hilow! I will need to read through it a few times more i think, but the leverage score is something i will utilize this season from Week 1!
Also, in part 8, Practicum, the first step of your process is something i started doing myself last year! It took a bit of time to set up and i was unsure how worthwhile it was, but seeing that its something you do also has given me a new found confidence that i am on the right path!
Again, thanks for another great course!
We should get some college credit in game theory after reading this course. The “Practicum” was truly illuminating.
Lesson five is worth the price of this course on its own. I feel like Hilow pulled ideas out of my head that weren’t fully formed and explained them to me—processes and ways of thinking that seem now to have been hiding in plain sight.
